Abstract

The principles of wavefront reconstruction by means of a geometric-optical reflection of radiation from surfaces of interference fringe maxima are discussed. The optical elements based on these principles should be achromatic. Two methods of the optical elements design are proposed. The first method is a direct holographic recording of the interference fringe structure containing only a few periods, and the second method is a combination of the measurement of the object wavefront shape with digital holography methods.
